Dr. David Butters, a Rainier Valley chiropractor, was recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Washington State Chiropractic Association (WSCA). He is the first recipient to ever receive this award by the WSCA.
Dr. Butters has been in practice for 37 years and owns Rainier Valley Chiropractic, P.S., located at 4236 36th Avenue South in Seattle. He is a 1973 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.
According to WSCA, “Dr. Butters has dedicated his professional career to the advancement of chiropractic and has demonstrated extraordinary commitment, leadership and dedication to the profession.”
He serves as chair of the Washington Chiropractic Trust, the political action committee for the chiropractic profession in Washington State, which works closely with the WSCA; the WSCA Board of Directors, representing the 7th Congressional District; and as chair of the WSCA Government Relations Committee. He served two five-year, governor-appointed terms on the Chiropractic Disciplinary Board and when it restructured to form the Chiropractic Quality Assurance Commission he was appointed and served for more than a year. He is a past chairperson of both organizations.
“I am honored to receive this recognition,” said Dr. Butters commented. “There are many who continue to work hard on behalf of the chiropractic profession and the patients we serve. Participating in the organizational activities and affairs of chiropractic provides an opportunity to give back to the profession that has blessed me and my family with so much.”
